Westland Foundation and Carbone Restaurant recently awarded their first Culinary Arts scholarship to Carmela Bianca Mayoralgo.
The presentation held November 6 at Carbone Coal Fired Pizza, 680 St. Anne’s Road, marked the beginning of the Westland-Carbone scholarship, which is aimed at increasing inner-Winnipeg students’ enrolment in Red River College’s Culinary Arts program.
Joined by her family, the first Westland-Carbone Scholarship recipient Carmela Bianca Mayoralgo says, “Thanks for the scholarship that is helping me to pay for my student loan. This scholarship brings me closer to my goal of becoming a restaurant owner someday.”
Carbone’s CEO Benjamin Nasberg says, “As a local business, Carbone is not only playing an active role in keeping our economy strong but also making it sure that it supports our community’s education needs.”
John Prystanski, Westland’s president says, “Carbone’s scholarship is an important contribution to the growth of our scholarship program. We ask Winnipeg businesses to partner with us in supporting our broader mission, which is to provide full post-secondary scholarships to every inner-Winnipeg student.”
Created in 1993, Westland Foundation is a volunteer-based and non-profit organization dedicated to empowering inner-Winnipeg youth, through post-secondary education.
